Aji Verde


Traditional Ají Verde uses green rocoto peppers which have a simple mild flavor but a heat level similar to a jalapeno.  This ají pairs green peppers with a variety of herbs and the resulting hot sauce adds an absolutely delicious and colorful punch to some of Peru’s rich and creamy entrees and starters.

  • Aji Verde

    Procedure1 pound seeded green peppers (try a blend of green bells and jalapenos)

  • ½ cup parsley
  • ¼ cup savory mint
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 2 spring onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 key limes, juiced
  • Salt
  1. Blend peppers, herbs, garlic, and oil in a blender or food processer. Add enough water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to encourage complete liquefaction.
  2. Season with salt to taste.
